Mr. Eugene Allen.
Wil Haywood put to pen the book,
"A Butler Well Served by This Election".
It is astonishing that Mr.Eugene Allen - a man/husband/father - worked in the White House as a Butler for 34 years, achieving the highest level of
Maitre d', serving 8 Presidents:
President Lyndon Johnson, President Richard Nixon,
President Gerald Ford, President Jimmy Carter,
President Ronald Reagan,
President George H. W. Bush,
President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush,
and the highlight? President Barack H. Obama.
"That's the man, he said, as he watched
President Barack H. Obama being sworn into office in 2008. "Whew, I'm telling you, it's something to see. Seeing him standing there, it's been worth it all."
Yes. Mr.Eugene Allen, who lived to be a "Mighty One" - 90 years of age, laid down with our ancestors in 2010. I salute you, and the men like you, Mr. Eugene Allen, who paved the way for our generation. Rest in Peace.
The film has an all star cast:
Clarence Williams III
Hats off to The Weinstein Company
My opinion? - And you already know I have one ~
This is truly a "Must See" film that shows how America, "The Beautiful",
is comprised of people who have True Grit. We've got some issues to work out amongst( yes, I'm using my Grandfather's word) ourselves, but through and through, we'll work 'em out.
Go ON with it, Lee Daniels!
Love & light, Carla
